Name Meaning

French: from the Late Latin personal name Darius, Greek Dareios, which was borne by various kings of ancient Persia, including Darius I ( 522–486 bc ). The ancient Persian form of the name was Darayavahush, meaning ‘possessor’, from daraya(miy) ‘possess’, ‘maintain’ + vahu ‘good’, ‘well’. This became accepted as a Christian name in medieval Europe in honor of a saint martyred at Nicaea at an uncertain date.
